England 1-2 Croatia (AET) REPORT: Three Lions bow out of World Cup 2018 in extra-time of semi-finals
Mario Mandzukic fired past Jordan Pickford in the 109th minute to break England hearts and send Croatia into Sunday’s showpiece event with France.
England had looked poised to make their first World Cup final since they were victorious in 1966, after leading through Kieran Trippier’s fifth-minute free-kick.
Croatia, in their first semi since 1998, levelled through Ivan Perisic after 68 minutes and then looked the more dangerous side.
It stayed level at 90 minutes, meaning Croatia faced extra time for the third successive game, having got past Denmark and Russia on penalties.
